We held a welcome webinar for lead partners of projects approved in Interreg Europe's first call in 2021-2027 on 19 January from 10:00 to 11:30 (CET/ Paris time).

During the webinar, the lead partners got an overview of the steps to follow to start their projects. The subsidy contract, the partnership agreement and the communication requirements were among the key topics of the webinar. We also presented the upcoming events and trainings available for the project partners and discussed questions from the participants.
